Try some live brine shrimp. Get a small bit in a net and rinse it with fresh water for a couple of seconds. sometimes a moving meal gets those guys going. After you get him eating try frozen, rinsed, and garlic guard and vitamin fortified brine or myisis shrimp.

Some fish never develop a taste for flakes. I had a blenny that would only eat frozen food he was an herbivore and refused all the nice little pellets, flakes and sheets I tried to feed him, in the end he probably starving even if he was eating meaty food because his body couldn't process it very well.

Flakes are not a good thing to rely on. Low nutrition and full of phosphates.
